Read Time:1 Minute

Bayonetta 3 has only been out for a few weeks, but series creator Hideki Kamiya has already confirmed that Bayonetta 4 is in development. He also said that the game’s ending “wasn’t conveyed correctly” and that Bayonetta 4 will be an “unexpected development,” per Eurogamer.

Now Playing: Bayonetta 3 Video Review

While it’s difficult to get into the ending’s apparent problems without revealing major spoilers for Bayonetta 3, GameSpot editor Jessica Howard explored the game’s themes in a recent feature article. As a whole, it’s fair to say that the announcement of a Bayonetta 4 isn’t exactly surprising, given how popular the previous games in the series have been. However, the fact that Kamiya is announcing the move less than a month after Bayonetta 3’s launch is definitely a bit unorthodox. Either way, judging by Platinum’s recent output, we shouldn’t expect to play the game anytime soon.
